Benjamin Franklin

A quote from Benjamin Franklin

I hope therefore that for our own sakes as a part of the people, and for the sake of posterity, we shall act heartily and unanimously in recommending this Constitution (if approved by Congress & confirmed by the Conventions) wherever our influence may extend, and turn our future thoughts & endeavors to the means of having it well administered.

— Encouraging delegates to adopt the Constitution. [September 17th, 1787]
